Roseville, Calif.- John Piches, alternate for Supervisor Jack Duran on the Roseville Veterans Memorial Hall Board, announced his official retirement from the board after serving since 1998. Piches, a World War II veteran, has been an active member of the Roseville and Placer County communities for decades, including spearheading Roseville’s annual Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day events.

Piches announced he was stepping down from the position at the March 5th Memorial Hall Board Meeting. Supervisor Duran thanked him for his service and commitment to the county.
“John is a true American hero in every sense of the word,” Duran said. “He has made undeniable sacrifices to our city, county and country.”

Duran has asked Piches to continue to advise him on all veterans’ issues before the county.

Piches will be replaced by former board member and Vietnam Veteran Charlie Peterson. Peterson spent eight years in the service, including five years overseas and two tours in Vietnam. He has been working in the Veterans community since returning home in 1968.
